Could you please let me know what the
groundcover used in so many of your firm's photos is? Also, how long after installation were the photos taken? In New England, we often use Thyme or tiny Juniperus procumbens, but I love the mounded and mossy look of the material used here.
Beautiful work! Thank you, Rebecca

Flame is natural gas. It is recycled glass blue. Thanks for the interest!

This unique garden design incorporates both the waterfall and firepit in such a interesting way. Could do something similar with a fire bowl and water bowl.
